Overseas Pet Travel

It’s time to leave Italy and a new life is waiting for you in a new country: we know how many things there are to do.  

There are many aspects to be taken care of and, among the chaos of the move, we add the emotions that inevitably involve us in view of such a big change; and everything becomes much more difficult.

However, your greatest concern is all above your faithful friend: how many questions are crowded in your mind? Will he travel safely, will he suffer, how can I know what documents to prepare, why on the web do I find so many alarming news?

 Before being lost in the maze of disinformation and be overwhelmed by a wave of emotions, get in contact with us: we will be able to reassure you and resolve your doubts. We have years of experience and we know exactly how to help you.

 

A Safe and Comfortable Flight

ReloCat Italy works with the most reputable airlines, and that meet the following requirements:

 

  • Live Pets Dedicated Area: that is air-conditioned and pressurized. During the flight your pet will enjoy the same conditions as passengers in the cabin.
  • Dedicated Pet Hotels inside the airport: when a night stop at the airport is necessary, your pet will receive an excellent Pet Hotel service. The airlines we choose must be able to offer impeccable hospitality and routing are scheduled according to the hospitality that is offered during the transfer flight.

Where are Pets placed in the Aircraft?

All Pets are secured in a safe dedicated space in the cargo hold, which is located underneath the passenger deck.

This dedicated room is comfortable, with temperature and pressure controlled in exactly the same way as the passenger in the cabins.

There is no lighting whilst in flight, as it has been proven over the years that Pets travel better in darkness and that they arrive in better shape than the passengers do, as animals do not suffer jetlag!

 

  • When pets travel in their Safe Dedicated Room, in a short time they realize that they will not be able to go out, but also that nothing will enter their cage, and they will feel outside of every danger
  • Pets do not realize the fact of being on a plane and flying: during our international meetings, listening to experts in behavioral studies of pets, we learned that according to their instinct once boarded, they realize they have been brought in a special area that sometimes jolts and sways during take-offs and departures. Then, simply, they wait for someone to come and open that door
  • In the absence of any external stimulation, pets then tends to sleep, accompanied by the rocking of the plane
  • Our long experience has taught us that after landing the animals are far more in shape than their owners!
